10th Annual Japan Festival This Weekend In Downtown Lexington
Downtown Lexington’s courthouse plaza will be transformed into a sea of Japanese culture, music, and food this Saturday as the city host’s the 10th annual Japan Festival. The event sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Kentucky is meant to celebrate the best of the Land of the Rising Sun.
"It's got food, it's got kids games, entertainment, Japanese beer, all of the aspects for all ages," explained Society President David Carpenter.
Carpenter says you can also test your athletic skills on a special American Ninja Warrior obstacle course and meet Lexington’s own Brandon Kelly, who’s competed four times on the popular TV show. The free event runs from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. rain or shine.
